Wondering how to keep the kiddos satisfied and yet not harm their health? We have just the right list of recipes for you.
Salty biscuit sandwiches
Prepare a mashed potato filling. Add a spoonful of it to a salty biscuit. Add some chopped tomatoes, onions, a little slice of cheese, and close with another biscuit. Even out the sides of the filling and roll the sandwich sideways on a plate of sev. Prepare several of these little sandwiches and lay them out for a pretty display before serving.
Kathi fruit 'n cheese
Cut some strawberries in halves and set them aside. Cut mangoes into cubes and set them aside. Make small cubes from cheddar cheese, the same size as the mangoes.

Separate round onion slices into rings and keep aside. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Coat the onion slices with the flour mixture. Now, add eggs and milk into the flour mix and whisk well.

This recipe is tasty, appealing to kids, and healthy. Cut paneer into long, thick strips. Prepare a cornflour slurry and beat some eggs in another bowl. Also, have some breadcrumbs on another plate.
